    Not going to lie, Mme. Garanca looks like Costello in that picture.

      phillyoperalover — too funny, so she does!

    • SilvestriWoman

      I thought it was Alice Coote!

  • Guillaume

    Where is the second right hand in this picture?

      On the “Press ‘N Open” book light, of course.

      Has to be in the crook of Fleming’s elbow, if the pic hasn’t been ‘shopped. Weird pose.

    well if Snuggies would make ppl look that glamorous they’d be flying off the shelves of the Met’s Opera shop…

    As a side note I’m so bummed I can’t go hear her performance of the Four Last Songs this Sunday at Carnegie Hall! I found out about it literally minutes after spending a lot of $$ for a Sia & Miguel concert in Oct :-(. I definitely need to hear her sing those Strauss songs before she retires though. That needs to happen!

    Has anyone heard Sebastian Weigle conduct?

  • auracentral

    My memory is that he conducted a Cosi at the Liceu in Barcelona in 2004 or 2005 which I saw, and a Siegfried in Madrid at the Real in 2007 with De Vol, Stig Anderson, Alan Titus. He was the Bayreuth conductor for Katharina Wagner’s Meistersinger from 2007-2011.

    I haven’t heard Sebastian Weigle conduct live, but his live recordings of FRAU, FANCIULLA, and FEEN are all excellently and persuasively conducted. The FRAU is especially worth hearing -- Tamara Wilson is a terrific Kaiserin, and the other singers are mostly fine as well
